A life lesson I once learned that I'll take to my grave.
You cannot trust anyone when money is involved, not even 'friends'.
A mate I knew back in England sold his subaru. He made the buyer bring a cashiers check, drove the guy to my mates bank to make sure the check cleared, then and only then, gave the buyer the keys.
A good example in my opinion.
It is much safer to assume that someone is a conman, or scam artist.
